In November 2020, Enviros, the Calgary Homeless Foundation and HomeSpace opened Triveri House, a 37-unit apartment building for adults aged 18 to 29 who are experiencing homelessness. It follows a housing first model that recognizes that meeting the basic need of a safe, stable place to live is required before homeless individuals can work on other issues that contributed to their homelessness. As the service provider of Triveri House, Enviros is responsible for ensuring that tenants have a safe living environment and for providing support to help them move from being at-risk for experiencing homelessness to living independently. This includes dedicated Enviros caseworkers to put together individual plans for tenants and connect them with the community services they need to move forward.
As of March 31, 2021, Triveri House was home to 20 people:
12 male / 8 female
Aged 18 to 26
Triveri House’s 37 apartments are distributed among individuals with more complex needs that require longer-term housing, individuals who need transitional housing for 24 months or less, and those who are finding housing barrier to moving forward and need a place to live for five to nine months. Recognizing that each individual is unique and has needs that may shift from less complex to complex, tenants may stay at Triveri House until they are 29.
